Since then, August 24 has become one of the most important holidays in modern Ukraine. Therefore on this day, since 1992 across all Ukraine, about different ages passed on August 24, 1991. Among various famous people, the races dedicated to the Independence Day of Ukraine, of course, attracted the most attention, as the main holy city did not miss the running community.
